    Default What are your top 5 Hard Rock albums from the 80's (non VH related)

    I'm pretty bored with the music I have on my IPOD so I was hoping a thread like this could help open my eyes up to some "classic rock" I have forgotten about.

    Just try to keep the VH related stuff off (VH, DLR, Hagar and HSAS) casue I'm pretty sure everyone on here loves VH...for the sake fo this thread let it be IMPLIED that some VH or VH related stuff is on your list but if it wasn't this is how the list would go.

    so anything that was released from Jan. 1st 1980 to December 31st 1989 is game...hard rock or heavy metal...hairbands, thrash..it's all fair game.

    Go!

    - Out Of The Silent Planet - King's X - 1988
    - Gretchen Goes To Nebraska - King's X - 1989
    - Mr. Big - Mr. Big - 1989
    - Tones - Eric Johnson - 1986
    - Whitesnake - Whitesnake - 1987

    Sticking with hard rock, I'll say:

    Def Leppard High 'N Dry (though a case could be made for their subsequent '80s albums as well)
    KISS Creatures Of The Night
    AC/DC Back In Black (with a nod to For Those About To Rock We Salute You)
    Guns 'N F'n Roses (don't be fooled by imitations) Appetite For Destruction

    ...and then something for the kiddies:

    Dead Kennedys Fresh Fruit For Rotten Vegetables

    Off the top of my head, and I am sure I will miss some. I am just trying to remember the tapes/discs that I absolutely wore out.

    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
    Iron Maiden - Powerslave (not my favorite by them now, but then, wore it out)
    Dokken - Back for the Attack (ditto, not my favorite now)
    Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith (ditto x3)
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!
